I’ve gone to bed, but this robotic tweet will tell late-nighters there’s an IMPORTANT PODCAST on Saturday night. twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

via TweetDeck

Don’t tell John Howard. It’ll only confuse him. twitter.com/jpwarren/statu…

via TweetDeck

If you don’t, you could always get someone to write it down for you, and you could read it later. But it really wouldn’t be the same.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

If you want to hear @JazzTwemlow say it in his own voice, you can listen to that episode of @HumansOfThis at omnyapp.com/shows/humans-o…

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@TwitsForMiles More Motoring Enthusiasts Party than One Nation, though, isn’t it?

via TweetDeck in reply to TwitsForMiles

@staticsan I guess there’s a reason it’s been such a successful distillery over the years. That and Kanaka labour.

via TweetDeck in reply to staticsan

Right. Bundaberg Red. $37.95 at @danmurphys. I should get them to sponsor a few bottles for the podcast. stilgherrian.com/edict/00060a/

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

True, because this is just cheap rum with a novelty label. twitter.com/sylmobile/stat…

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I assume the shitty cheap and nasty variety of Bundaberg Rum is the way to go.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Important question: Which variety of Bundaberg Rum is most appropriate when reading One Nation’s policies? bundabergrum.com.au/bottle-shop

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

This happens three days from now. Three days. JUST THREE DAYS. twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

@clovertouchaus Thanks. There’s a lot of crap in there. It needs a bit of reorganising.

via TweetDeck in reply to clovertouchaus

@dot_gif_guy I reckon $5 is about all this old whore could get away with charging these days.

@Karolus_P Well, yes. Or about anything else, for that matter.

I also tend to get frustrated when mass emotional reactions overpower the logical. But then we didn’t have emotions in our family.

via TweetDeck

There are probably a number of good and valid reasons why I should never become a TV news editor.

via TweetDeck

@SezClom @paulkidd No argument there. I haven’t paid attention this case, though, so I know I don’t have a valid opinion about it.

via TweetDeck in reply to SezClom

@vervyerver @mm_ssssshh Was it? Was it really? Or was it just a lot of Western social media boosters hyping up that aspect? I dunno.

via TweetDeck in reply to vervyerver

@rixonl44 @paulkidd I’ve seen plenty of men complaining about the sentence just now. (OK, I just did a .)

via TweetDeck in reply to rixonl44

@mm_ssssshh I don’t “know”, but that’s my belief. Happy to be proven wrong, glad even. I’m just very sceptical of the alleged power of it.

via TweetDeck in reply to mm_ssssshh

These are all good points, and I can see that my opinion is not widely shared. twitter.com/Colvinius/stat…

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@mm_ssssshh Shouting on Twitter is not a “protest”. It’s a voicing of rage, certainly, and that has its purpose.

via TweetDeck in reply to mm_ssssshh

Also, don’t people find it just a tad… irregular to be passing judgement without hearing the evidence or knowing South African law?

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

This is true, and it’s terrible. But obsessing about one overseas criminal trial will change precisely none of this. twitter.com/mm_ssssshh/sta…

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Trying to think of a single reason why I’d give even one fuck about a criminal trial in another country. You people must have easy lives.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

“Tonight on ‘I’m an Instant Fucking Expert’, South African criminal law and sentencing! Thanks for joining us. I’m Dwayne Arsehat.”

@dmeeze Amazon is a media company? Well, I suppose if Facebook is a “tech” company.

via TweetDeck in reply to dmeeze

@juhasaarinen By the way, has anyone ever told you that you’re an arsehole?

@SnarkyPlatypus @purserj If I suggest a webinar to this particular client, he will shoot me.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@purserj Given that people don’t read anything, really, we should probably just give up completely.

via TweetDeck in reply to purserj

Thank you, @juhasaarinen. I have a second question. What is the URL of this example? twitter.com/juhasaarinen/s…

via TweetDeck

Can any point me to a good example of a media company using a blog to tell customers about the progress of new services and features?

via TweetDeck

@wibbly @SnarkyPlatypus I believe “learned helplessness” is the name for it. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Learned_h…

via TweetDeck in reply to wibbly

@wibbly @SnarkyPlatypus I have several clients who don’t read past the first few words of a message. “It’s too hard,” but they never try.

via TweetDeck in reply to wibbly

Actually, “Trying to understand why a client would” is the start of so many frustrating sentences.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Trying to understand why a client would email to ask why they’ve been billed for something, rather than looking on the invoice.

via TweetDeck

@skwashd I may not have recovered by then.

via TweetDeck in reply to skwashd

Given that you’re probably slacking off before home time, you might as well read about Saturday’s podcast recording. twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

@mozreactor @PeteLawler I am +1 for comedy, but +3 for disappointment.

via TweetDeck in reply to dobes

And finally, @dobes, “Isn’t there another one? Oh that’s right, WA.” It’s all completely logical. No heathen alphabet-science here!

New blog post: “Analysing The 9pm Edict’s Hidden Costs” stilgherrian.com/edict/costs1/ There are charts. pic.twitter.com/xem1WSKJKT

via TweetDeck

@ChrisEgginton The blog post explains all. But it’ll be me. Or more accurately, me with a bottle of Bundaberg Rum.

via TweetDeck in reply to ChrisEgginton

Very shortly I’ll have more information about the money aspects of producing “The 9pm Edict” podcast. There will be charts.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

IMPORTANT AND ANNOYING ANNOUNCEMENT: Here’s the info on Saturday’s live-streamed podcast recording. Give me money. twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

via TweetDeck

@skwashd No it wasn’t, but thanks for the reminder.

via TweetDeck in reply to skwashd

If they phone back, I’ll give them… well, whose bank account detailses

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I just got a phone call from 03 9940 7777. I didn’t answer. Looks like it’s scammers after personal data. scamcallfighters.com/scam-call-0399…

via TweetDeck

@jonoabroad @dobes Since you didn’t see that fact in the blog post and in many tweets, I’ll add it to the first line. Stand by.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

thegrugq_ebooks It’ll save battery, you faved the tweet.

via Orwell for Android (retweeted on 9:42 AM, Jul 6th, 2016 via TweetDeck)

@jeamland @WarWraith Actually, they have “iOTA (born 1968/1969) Australian musician and actor”, so go for it.

via TweetDeck in reply to jeamland

@jeamland Well then there’s Wikipedia’s notion of “notability”, where minor characters on US TV are more important than humans elsewhere.

via TweetDeck in reply to jeamland

I wouldn’t be so crass as to add myself to Wikipedia’s page on “Mononymous person”… en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mononymou…

via TweetDeck

@clovertouchaus I don’t know that I’m “popular” though. More an acquired taste.

via TweetDeck in reply to clovertouchaus

@clovertouchaus Oh, well, my Twitter profile links to my website, with far, far too much info about me. Even photos. stilgherrian.com

via TweetDeck in reply to clovertouchaus

@SnarkyPlatypus @dikkii All these things can be arranged with just a little planning.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@posty I’ve never gone down the FOI rabbit-hole, and I won’t start with this one. ;) @joshgnosis is your man.

via TweetDeck in reply to posty

Hey @irisherself (and everyone else), I’ve added a PayPal form to my tip page. stilgherrian.com/tip/ It’s ugly, but it’ll take your money.

via TweetDeck

@dobes The apartment at Ashfield. No live audience for this one, unless I get so much money I can afford a producer.

via TweetDeck in reply to dobes

@NicholasFryer That’s much better than my A bit, A bit more, Quite a bit more, A lot, Quite a lot. Thanks.

via TweetDeck in reply to NicholasFryer

@NicholasFryer Unfortunately there’s only three levels of Heaven, and anyway that seems slightly pretentious.

via TweetDeck in reply to NicholasFryer

@KompleatKnut Yeah, but all those words are already in the system, so I don’t have to type them ever again.

via TweetDeck in reply to KompleatKnut

@NicholasFryer I’ve labelled this menu “Generososity”, but I need names for the five or six levels of generososity offered, $5 up to $100.

via TweetDeck in reply to NicholasFryer

@NicholasFryer Well here’s one for you. PayPal only lets non-profits use a “Donate” button with user-entered amounts. I need a drop-down…

via TweetDeck in reply to NicholasFryer

@NicholasFryer And I’ve just Stated A Fact which I may well have just Completely Made Up. But it’ll keep you busy for a few minutes.

via TweetDeck in reply to NicholasFryer

@NicholasFryer I think you confuse the final “s” with that number thing.

via TweetDeck in reply to NicholasFryer

Adding a single-sentence reply to all these support tickets so their status becomes “Waiting for customer”.

via TweetDeck

@KrazyKarl910 Well that is what we call “piss poor”. Thank you.

via TweetDeck in reply to KrazyKarl910

@jpwarren Like many people, I never feel bold enough to charge more money. Replace “bold” with another four-letter word as desired.

via TweetDeck in reply to jpwarren

@KrazyKarl910 Sadly, time travel is not one of my powers. Unless I take a nap, and suddenly find myself three hours into the future.

via TweetDeck in reply to KrazyKarl910

@davispg I suppose I could shove a camera up somewhere while I’m recording. But does that destroy the magic of the audio theatre?

via TweetDeck in reply to davispg

I’ve just found a payment into my bank account labelled “Nude or GTFO”. It’s that kind of week.

via TweetDeck

@irisherself That’s in my administrivia list for today. I didn’t get to it… when? Monday? Anyway, I’ll do that today.

via TweetDeck in reply to irisherself

Wed plan, draft: Blog post (done); record audio for same; work thru geeky task list; errands and administrivia; podcast production planning.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus I continue to believe that I’m essentially unemployable.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Anyway, I should cost it out as a supplier, not as a casual employee, because I supply the equipment, accommodation, travel, training, etc.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Further to those two tweets, why am I reading HR policies before breakfast?

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

It sets out all the salary bands, and the points within those bands, but where’s the thing matching jobs to salary bands?

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I thought “ABC Enterprise Agreement 2013-2016” might be a useful guide for podcast costs, but it’s 116 pages of HR-speak.

via TweetDeck

@withMEAA Have the MEAA’s recommended freelance journalism rates really not been updated since 2012?

via TweetDeck

That blog post also explains why you should give me money, and how you can do that. Or don’t ask why, just pay me at stilgherrian.com/tip/

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

The entire concept for this podcast episode is insane. Nevertheless, it shall go ahead as planned. For obvious reasons.
